    RSX Type S + Rain Encounter

    I'm going to lunch today w/ a friend who drives a RSX Type S w/ I/E. It's raining and we get to a intersection in which all 3 first lanes are empty w/ a red light. The speed limit is 55mph. We've been using the headset to talk on our cells so I asked if he wanted to run ... he obliged.
    Light turns green and I look over at him and once I see his wheels "spin," I slip at 4K rpm and perform the AWD launch. He just disappears from my side and I look at my rear-view mirror and he's 2+ cars back at the end of 1st and by the time I hit 60 he was 10+ cars back. He and I knew I'd win but I haven't had fun in a long time. We discussed it over lunch and he said that by the time he got traction, I was already 2+ cars ahead and pulling. I love AWD and so does he.
